View Full Version : Ebola In a Free Society

How would a stateless society handle Ebola, or some other disease outbreak?

Ebola is all over the headlines and airwaves. If it bleeds it leads, they say, and stirring up a panic about a lethal epidemic is a surefire way to drive ad sales through the roof for main stream media. I too shall capitalize on the hysteria, and try to make an actual point in the process.

Side note: I like how there is debate wether being free and truthful is a good idea or not. Like notice how the term "free society" is debated here daily: should we have free society or not? Indeed... what a difficult question... Or notice how the term "truther" has actually been made into a bad thing. Truth is a bad thing now.

Freedom, truth etc. Terrible things!

Do you mean a utopia, or a chaotic anarchy?

In a free-market capitalist society: rich people would recognize the threat and spend money isolating themselves, working on a cure, and eventually selling said cure (or giving it away for philanthropic reasons)

....In a different type of society, preppers would wall themselves off, and stupid people would do stupid stuff, infecting the stupid population.
